About the Program

We get it: You have very specific career goals. So why shouldn't the focus of your master's be just as specific? Maybe you want to combine social media with leadership and business development. Or how about bringing together public health and nonprofit management? You can do that and more by earning an MS or MA in Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies at UAB.

You see, we know that in today's job market, you're often required to wear plenty of different hats. That's why we've allowed you to customize your path to a master's degree by blending two areas of expertise. How do we do it? It's simple really. You'll choose two out of several approved graduate certificate programs, which include topics from Business Analytics to Teaching Multilingual Learners to Global Health and more. Altogether, you'll be required to complete 30 credit hours, which will include the courses in both certificates plus a final Capstone Experience to demonstrate your mastery of the subjects. Whether or not you earn an MA or an MS depends on the certificates chosen. In the end, our goal is for you to graduate with a knowledge and skill set that is as unique as you are—and that will propel you toward success.
